Wildfire! Preventing Home Ignitions

This video is based on the research of Jack Cohen, U. S. Forest Service, Research Physical Scientist, at the Fire Sciences Laboratory of the USDA Forest Service in Missoula, MT. The program discusses how the combustion process effects forest fires, what you can do to create survivable space, why some homes are destroyed while others survive, how to identify your home's Ignition Zone - the area that includes the home and its immediate surroundings, which, if properly conditioned, can save the home during a wildfire.

Understanding Fire Behavior
in the Wildland Urban Interface

The video is part of the Fire Fighter Safety Series. a multipart instructional package developed for small community fire departments to address the problems faced by structural and wildland firefighters when fighting fires, especially those threatening structures in the wildland/urban interface.  Although geared towards the Professional Fire Fighter it contains many valuable lessons for those individuals developing a fire safety plan.


Using Water Effectively
in the Wildland/Urban Interface

This training video for fire departments shows various approaches to using water wisely for reducing interface structure loss. Although geared towards the Professional Fire Fighter, the video is incredibly valuable and informative to show different ways of using water effectively in interface firefighting and provides examples of techniques or strategies including planning and locating water sources, accessing those water sources for supply; and testing and maintaining the source. Some of the tactics shown include: developing quick engine fill sites, making the best use of limited water, proper use of foams and gels, mobile water delivery using various extinguishing options, and site preparation to reduce water needs.
